In this swap you create a POSTCARD for 1 swap partner on the theme of LOVE, using the Altered Text Technique. You can create your Postcard in any medium you like (you need to start with a book page, the finished Postcard can be either an original or a print or photograph of your original work - if a print it's best to mount it on card) - but please keep to the standard Postcard size.
It’s both great and strange for me to see more people working with altered text. I first started using the technique about 15 years ago and in my naivety thought I had invented it!! I later discovered a number of other artists using the same method of working and became fascinated with Artists Books. I have really loved seeing swaps come up with my favourite way of working!
If you're not familiar with altered text, have a look at these (some are of my work, but might give you an idea of the technique)
Think about illustrating around your chosen text, maybe use collage, sewing, fabric, stamping etc etc.
You must have at least 3 mailed and rated Type 3 swaps and a rating of no less than 4.75, but newbies are very welcome too! Please message me if you don't meet the requirements but really want to join!
I will be checking profiles before allocating partners to make sure all is ok.
I will angel.
